Trump wants Russian Federation to rejoin G-7

  • Macron likens talking with Trump to making sausage

United States President Donald Trump has accused Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of making "false statements" and said that Washington will not endorse a G7 communique, the media reported.

Trump, who angered his G7 partners last week with tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from Canada, the European Union and Mexico as part of his "America First" agenda, vowed to hold firm until US goods had "fair" access to markets.

"We'll either leave it the way it is as a threesome deal" and "change it very substantially", Trump said Saturday in La Malbaie, Quebec, speaking to reporters before departing the Group of Seven leaders' meeting.

"Maybe, but nobody is forever", he told a news conference flanked by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

The President said Canada and Mexico were also close to a deal on a sunset clause on NAFTA, but a senior Canadian official said Ottawa is not interested in such a clause that would trigger reopening the trade pact in five years.

In addition to the US and Canada, the group includes Britain, Italy, France, Germany and Japan.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said European Union countries at the summit agreed that the conditions to readmit Russian Federation had not been met and even Moscow seemed to reject the suggestion.

Trudeau called the fact that the USA had based the tariffs on a national security reason "kind of insulting".

"They do so much more business with us than we do with them ... the numbers are so astronomically against them? we win that war a thousand times out of a thousand".


Photos that have gone viral show how Macron turned part of Trump's hand pale with a blood-squeezing grip when they met Friday on the sidelines of the G7 summit.

"I have made it very clear to the President that it is not something we relish doing, but it something that we absolutely will do", Mr. Trudeau said. We take them on.

All the G7 nations have agreed at their summit in Canada on the importance of a "rules-based trading system", despite tensions with the US.

He said trade practices of many countries are very unfair to United States farmers.

"President Trump is targeting the dairy sector because he wants to dump US dairy into Canada", Lampron told The Canadian Press, adding that Canada imports five times more dairy from the USA than it exports. "Americans stand with you, even if our president doesn't", he tweeted. "With one country we have $375 billion in trade deficits".

President Donald Trump leaves after holding a press conference ahead of his early departure from the G7 Summit on June 9, 2018 in La Malbaie, Canada.

The US president is en route to Singapore for a meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, which Trump described as a "mission of peace".

As he prepared to travel to Canada, he ramped up his blast of Canada on Twitter this morning over what he says are unfair trade practices. The Crimea annexation in 2014 resulted in the leading world powers excluding Russian Federation from the club and becoming the G-7 again.

During a news conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Mr Macron was asked about a CNN report on Monday, saying that a phone call between him and Mr Trump last week had been "terrible".
